Either that, or he just realized he’s about to spend almost six years in the slammer over some bullsh*t. Because, according to TMZ, even though he pleaded guilty to hustling oxycodone, he’s now saying he did it for a good cause.
Sam Jones — who also starred in “Smallville” and “Blue Mountain State” — wants a judge to go easy on him … despite having pled guilty to conspiracy to sell more than 10,000 pills of oxycodone.
The feds want Jones to spend 70 months in prison — but Jones says it’s an unfair sentence because his only intention was to raise enough cash to save his friend from certain doom.
According to court docs, Jones says his childhood friend, a drug dealer named Tom Cataloni believed he was on the hook to a Mexican drug cartel to the tune of $90,000.
Jones says rather than let his friend get killed, he agreed to slang some pills to help raise the cash … only to find out, there was no Mexican drug cartel … and the whole thing was a DEA set up.
Jones says he only played a “minor role” in the conspiracy — and therefore wants a reduced sentence.
What dude? Shut the hell up, this isn’t Half Baked!
